Winemaker's Notes:

Diemersfontein is known for its beauty, informal elegance, and grace. Diemersfontein has belonged to the Sonnenberg family since the early 1940s, when David’s grandfather, Max, bought the 183 hectare farm, which lies in the shadow of the majestic Hawekwa Mountains with a panoramic view of both Du Toit’s Kloof and Bains’ Kloof. Central to the working wine estate, is the third-generation family manor house, known as the ‘Groot Huis’, overlooking magnificent gardens, which are reminiscent of an era when gracious living and tranquility were the order of the day. Designed by Cecilia Sonnenberg, the gardens offer an abundance of roses and azaleas, a secluded swimming pool and is a much sought after venue. Of the Premium range, the Pinotage was awarded a coveted place in the ABSA Top Ten Pinotage competition in the first year of launching the range. They produce intense and well-balanced wines of substantial complexity, with the potential to age well, whilst readily drinkable when young. It is opulent with mocha coffee, black verona chocolate, roasted nuts with hints of caramelized banana and blackcurrant on the palate. It is the 'coffee/chocolate' Pinotage (the original) in this range that has made Diemersfontein so well-known and highly-regarded.
